Avatar: The burning earth is a surprisingly good game. The game play isn't THAT repetitive, the controls are good, and the story is pretty good also. The only bad thing is that the graphics are kind of cheesy, and during the cut scenes, the character's mouths don't move while there talking. This game is worth renting and maybe even worth buying.

The game had better graphics this time around and you could actualy do a combo with melee moves. Plus, the addition of new characters was awesome. But then it got bad. You run out of health very quickly with barely ever getting more health. The gameplay is VERY repetitive with limitless amount of the same bad guys fighting you. Also, you never really see a difference in moves. Your range actack cant be leveld up to a different type of move.Basically it got old pretty quickly so reant it dont buy it. Trust me.
Shoddy graphics, slow gameplay, almost zero attention to detail. In the in-game movies, the character's mouths don't move. Health potion chests are few and far between, every time you get a health updgrade it has to count 1,2,3,4 up to however many you have and when you have enough, you don't get a lot of health. Because of the small amount of health potions, you get stuck in the harder boss battles (lose once, start over with what full health would have been at the start of the game) and it becomes impossibe, seeing as how you use all those potions to regenerate your health before the fight starts. No aiming for the ranged attack, and the special moves have too small a range. The stealth sections are inane and unnecessary.
Over all, I'm sorry I even considered renting this game.
